Super Simple Songs at home
We use Super Simple Songs in all of our classes and it’s a joy to see kids singing them, but we don’t often get to see the kids really get into the songs at home. The parents of our students often share stories of even the shyest kids in class really letting loose when they listen to the songs at home.
It’s something to remember when teaching young learners. The classroom can be quite intimidating. In addition to being in foreign environment, younger children are still learning to be comfortable playing with other kids. It’s very natural for young learners to be reserved in class, but VERY talkative and active at home. Young learners LOVE to imitate their teachers at home, so be aware that even the quiet kid who never says anything in class IS listening and most likely re-living your lessons over and over again at home.
Here’s a fun video of Dylan in Belgium enjoying Walking Walking at home uploaded by his Mom, Sarah. I love it when he plays the trumpet at the beginning!
